Spray Nozzle Control for Preservation of Vegetated Conservation Features

Grants and Contracts Details


This demonstration project is intended to encourage producers to adopt precision spray application technologies to insure preservation of vegetated conservation structures that include grassed waterways and field borders. By adopting map-based spray nozzle control, field boundary files can be uploaded to the sprayer to insure the preservation of vegetation when applying burn-down herbicides that are common with no-till farming in Kentucky. Further, DEMs and GIS will be utilized to identifiy areas susceptible to erosion that would benefit from grassed waterways and field border to insure these features meet applicable design requirements and program minimums.
